Yeah, maybe that… coz it does look a bit ugly lol.

Bit of a nod to the all black with gold highlights of the 1970s-80s JPS Lotus’ and the Renault from a few years back, but nothing too special imo.

Screengrabs from the reveal. Will replace with official pics later.


#1365

It gets a big “meh” from me. Looks exactly like the JPS Lotus knock-off from a few years ago.


#1366

Yip, not a fan of it either. All the white should be gold as well. Or all the gold should be white. Driver’s suits suffer the same fate:


#1367

It’s not bad, just not terribly imaginative. The gold really doesn’t “pop” against the black either. Also, if the Renault is predominantly black with yellow highlights again… Ugh. Too monochrome for my taste.


#1368

On a different note, the 2019 cars barely look different from last year, if this one is anything to go by.


#1369

This is just the Kivery launch, I dont think this is the car?


#1370

Possible, but it certainly has a 2019 spec front wing. Of course they will be hiding things until testing, but still.

Edit: According to Autosport.com, the physical car is a 2018 show car with some 2019 bits on it, but the renders are supposedly the real deal. Either way, very little to see at this point.


#1371

apparently it was the 2018 car. just with the livery.


#1372

sorry didnt see you added that it was the 2018 car. my bad.


#1373

Don’t really care what back markers look like


#1374

Sure, OK, whatever. I can express my opinion about the car, can’t I?


#1375

Was not aimed at you, just a general comment.

#1377

Ferrari stuck Mission Winnow in the team name? Interesting…


#1378

Its their horrible new title sponsor if I am not mistaken


#1379

Not really new; It’s a sneaky way for Phillip Morris International to stick a big “M” on the car without adding the letters “arlboro” after it. Same old ciggie company, just different branding.


#1380

Got to say, the Haas doens’t look that bad. The livery is just okay, and I think I will look good speeding on a race track. But what is striking is the renders showing off some 2019 aero parts, and I have to say, that front wing is looking fine as hell!! I’m a big fan of that design


#1381

Agreed, simpler does look better.
